Painting other peoples' stuff...

Post  squalie on Sun Nov 30, 2014 2:55 pm

So, I painted Kellys army and thought I should post pics to prove. I finished it in a year but took about a month to paint. You do the math. Packing up his army, I found a NIB chariot I glued and started to paint. After that, you'll have Kelly to face on the table! I have Franks Ogres next.

Ya, he wanted some Warcraft inspired Ice Theme. Never pretended to understand it, just took his cash and went from there.

After I paint Franks contractually obligated Ogre army, I will never do this again - even if I'm out of work. It's actually pretty draining to paint something that isn't yours.

Absolutely godamn right. Never. Commission painting is soul crushing and painful. There's an old piece of wisdom that says find something you love, then get paid to do it. I think this is the exact opposite of what you need to do. I've found the second I take something I love and make it work it becomes just that, more work to do. I can paint a single mini at most on commission but an entire army would make me drive a knife into my temple.

Well, it looks like Kelly has a pretty solid warriors army, plus it looks great! I had the privilege of playing him at tooncon and he'll be a great addition even though he is playing warriors.

I don't think I could do commission work. I get too attached to the stuff I paint. I wouldn't be able to give it up once I finished.

Is this the only model you have painted so far? At least Frank won't lose immediately for unpainted models I guess, unless we're playing blood and glory. It does look good though, hopefully you can get-er-done in time.

That's good, I like the colors and the base. Frank is going to have an army to be proud of.

Any pictures available of the other stuff or am I just going to have to wait and see it in Edmonton?

Keep it up! Commission work is the most soul draining process known to man.

I will literally never do this again. Ever.

It's exactly that - a soul draining experience. I honestly told my wife that painting one fig might be cool, but a whole army is horrible.

Oh well, days away from only doing my projects from now on!

you wait until that freedom hits you brutha! I know that when I've finished long commissions the experience was amazing. It was weird as it's literally the ole "Thank god I'm done painting, now I can start painting!!!"

God, that's exactly how it feels. It's amazing how often I didn't paint as I wanted to - but felt guilty that I hadn't finished Franks army, so I wouldn't paint at all.

I'm looking forward to one more "Fantasy" Project and getting started on my Soviets. Frank came over the other day so I could show him progress and ask what he thought about the army. Before he could answer I said " Just so you know - I don't actually care what you think". They're almost done and it's a weight lifted.

I think it looks good, you did yourself proud.

Now, banish this memory from your mind and go on.
